DeLeire and Levy note in their review of gendered-preference literature that ‘there is very little consensus on methods, results and interpretation’ (13). They further suggest that different preferences may not be reflected in employment outcomes. In particular, women’s preferences for safe and people-oriented work are not necessarily met in their current employment or in their expressed experience of it (see also Reed & Dahlquist 1994).

Arguing for the positioning of ‘choice’, and individuals making choices, at the heart of our understanding of gendered job selection, she suggests that work patterns – women being over-represented in part-time work and in less well-remunerated work for instance – reflect not external constraints, such as discrimination, but the existence of fundamentally different types of women.

Hakim shares the tendency towards obfuscation in relation to the origins of her imputed female preferences, but the evidence would seem to point clearly to some form of innate origin. Certainly, her insistence that preferences persist in a context where equal opportunities legislation has done its work, would seem to support this conclusion, as does the suggestion that choices are now ‘unfettered’, with the clear implication that in different historical periods they existed in a fettered form, and so manifested differently.
